1:00 am
deepening divides, raging violence. we'll have the latest on iraq's worsening crisis. welcome back to cnn. i'm natalie allen. also ahead this hour, israelis and palestinians trade airstrikes and rockets. we'll take you live to gaza city. and iceland closes its air space near an active volcano. experts say an eruption is imminent. and we start in iraq where bombings have rocked three major cities. in kirkuk, three car bombs and a
1:01 am
roadside device explode. 20 people were killed, more than 100 wounded. near irbil, another car bombing. several people injured. no one killed in this blast. it was the first bombing though in that city in a year. and in baghdad a suicide bomber targeting the interior ministry killed at least four people and wounded 35 others. another kind of terror is taking place in amerlee, an iraqi shiite town that has been under an isis siege for two months. we're joined live in baghdad with more on the stories. it's hard to even fathom how these people are holding out in this town. >> reporter: yes, it does sound like a very desperate situation in that town of amerlee, 18,000 residents, 5,000 families living there. we are told by members of the
1:02 am
sh shia turkman population that the city has been surrounded by more than 70 days from four different directions. isis militants stopping food supplies, medical supplies, anything really from reaching the town. water and power have been cut off. they're living in desperate and dire conditions. they're not receiving any aid. the iraqi military has had difficulty in delivering any aid to the town. now to give you an idea, it's in a province north of baghdad. predominantly sunni province. that is where we saw isis making advances that started in june with their move into mosul and also down into salahadine province and it took over many villages and towns close by to amerli which led to this siege that we're seeing. and the united nations here, the u.n. special representative for
1:03 am
iraq is calling for the international community, iraq's friends really to help and prevent a massacre that could happen in there. >> and this couldn't come at a worse time for iraq. they're seeing the rampage of isis and at the same time now we've seen sporadic violence break out across the country. you've said before you've never seen iraq so divided as now. >> reporter: yeah. the sectarian tensions, natalie, feel like they're almost at an all-time high here. even during the height of the sectarian violence in iraq it did not feel so divided like it is today. with the siege of amerli. we're hearing now that shia militias are being mobilized to try to break the siege of the two of the major shia militias here, they have been mobilized when the isis threats had been raised in the country back in june as they were moving closer
1:04 am
to baghdad and there were concerns. the government needed help. the shia dominated security forces needed assistance with that, so shia militias were mobilized. this really contributed to that cycle of fear, mistrust, and concern that on the one hand you have a tarks taking place by sunni militants on the shia community and on the other hand you have the shia being mobilized. this is what iraqis refer to as the dark days 2006, 2007, the dark days there's concern that the bombings there's concerns that these are attempts to try and push iraq trying to push
1:05 am
back and reunite that sectarian war. when we see attacks like this, a lot of concern about where this is going. >> absolutely. darker days perhaps ahead. just terrible to think about. jomana karadsheh. thank you. violence has forced hundreds of thousands of iraqis from their home but international aid is finally coming their way. the u.n. has lost a maaunched a aid this month. it's shipping 22 million tons. anna coren spoke to a u.n. official coordinating the effort. >> it certainly is ramping up. this is the single largest push. it is here. we're getting 2500 tons of aid in over a ten day period ending in a week. there's a lot going on as you can see behind us. materials coming in, materials going out. it's going to be that way not just for another week i think
1:06 am
but for weeks and months i think. >> where is all of this aid coming from? >> some coming from jordan, we've got the british sending in aid, saudi arabia. germans. >> reporter: what are you sending to the refugees? >> we are sending jugs for water, tents, family tents that can fit six to eight people. we have thousands of those coming in. kitchen kits so people can cook and have a meal which they haven't been able to do for quite some time. we have hygiene kits to make sure people are healthy. plastic sheeting. you can't underscore enough you can cover your head from the sun, ground cloth or any other number of items. >> you have kits for some 12,000 families but as far as refugees go, there are 700,000. >> we will end up -- this will
1:07 am
be a long-term process. it's going to take longer to get more kits in, more of these specific items in so not everyone needs a tent, not everyone will need a kit. we're doing assessments to determine not only where people are but what their needs are. we hope to have those complete in a week. it's not soon enough but it's as soon as we can make it happen and we are moving quickly. >> reporter: ned, what do you say to the critics that believe aid agencies have been dragging their feet? >> we are a large operation. i can only speak for unhc. we are a very large operation. we can't be as nimble as we'd like to be. we wish we could have been here two weeks ago. that's not the way it works. everyone was caught off gurd by this. we are reacting and we are reacting in a very powerful way today. >> anna coren there speaking with the unhcr in iraq.
1:08 am
the week's long battle for the airport in libya's capital appears to be over. an alliance of militias from the sunni say they have taken control of tripoli international airport. they've seized it from a rival militia. an ordinary saturday night, that's how the man in charge of public safety in ferguson, missouri, described the evening 15 days after a policeman shot and killed unarmed teenager michael brown. >> tonight there were no molotov cocktails, no shootings, no guns were seized. again tonight we deployed no smoke devices, no tear gas and no mace. and, again, tonight no police officer fired a single bullet. we did respond to a couple of incidents tonight, a call for a shot fired behind the sam's meat market and a smashed drive
1:09 am
through sign -- a smashed drive through sign at mcdonald's. in total six people were arrested, one for destruction of property and resisting arrest by fleeing. the remaining five were for failure to disperse. >> this was the scene a short time ago on streets of ferguson. a relatively quiet demonstration compared to confrontations last week between protesters and police. ♪ ♪ >> on saturday a youth rally in ferguson marked two weeks since the shooting took place. things may be calming down in ferguson, but the unrest and looting have taken a heavy toll, and as cnn's anna cabrera reports, it's still not clear whether or not the local economy will ever recover. >> reporter: if race is one issue driving the protests in ferguson, socioeconomic disparity may be another causing an eruption of pain and
1:10 am
frustration. >> if the people with the money and the power and the influence don't control it, don't show any interest in it, it going to continue. >> reporter: but now life has become even harder for some following the ongoing destruction and looting. businesses are boarding up. >> reporter: you're closing up? >> yeah, we going to close up. we going to board it up. >> reporter: until when? >> we don't know. >> reporter: this beauty supply store was broken into and looted twice in one week. >> you know, now i have to look and feed my family in a different way. >> reporter: even shops that haven't been damaged have taken a huge hit. one business owner tells us he lost $1,000 a day. about 60% of his revenue since the unrest began. >> there's been rumors that the businesses are going to leave, property values are going to go down. >> reporter: one economic expert says the current business
1:11 am
climate in ferguson may be reminiscent of what happened to the l.a. riots in the early '90s where some businesses never rebuilt and unemployment skyrocketed. >> especially when you've got a smaller owned business than wall marts and chain stores. as much as they might like to rebuild and love their community, they're not going to be able to economically able to survive. that's heartbreaking. >> we still have children. we still have families here. it's like you can't destroy everything here. we need, you know what i'm saying, everything in our community. >> reporter: young mother bianca hoff who lives within eye shot of where young michael was shot. >> i think it's going to get worse. >> reporter: you think it's going to get worse? >> i think it's going to get worse. >> reporter: hoff wonders what's going to happen to her community. i don't want my child to go through this. you want it to be differ. >> huff wants to know will he be
1:12 am
treated fairly as he grows snup will her town be able to overgrow the destruction? will her community be able to bridge the racial and socioeconomic divide that appears wider and deeper than ever. anna cabrera, cnn, ferguson, missouri. you're watching cnn. coming up later in our program, israelis and palestinians continue the fighting. we'll take you live to gaza. plus, kiev is holding a military parade to celebrate independence day in ukraine, but not everyone in the country is happy about it. also, air space has already been closed around this icelandic volcano. the big shadow it could cast on flyers in that region. we'll look into that coming up.

♪ ♪ military parade in ukraine, capital key eiev. it's celebrating independence day when it split in 1991. president poroshenko addressing the crowd. they're planning a counter event. many people in that region miss the by gone soviet times. in donetsk three people were
1:16 am
killed. more sanctions against russia are possible if the conflict in eastern ukraine continues. cnn's diana magnay is in the eastern city. she joins us now. sloviensk has developed into something quite differently, diana. >> reporter: certainly, yes. sloviensk really for the first part of this conflict was a main rebel strong hold and the city was under siege in the way dontsz and luhansk was. the picture behind me couldn't be further removed from how it was. when i was here last the streets were deserted, there was heavy artillery fire. the people from positions outside shelling into the city itself. now the ukrainian flag flies. we've seen a procession for independence day move around the
1:17 am
town. a normal life continues, and that is a very different picture from what is going on in donetsk and luhansk where civilians are losing their lives every day. six in total. yesterday we're hearing the leaders of the donetsk republic plan to hold a counter parade where they will be parading captured ukrainian military vehicles and also the captured prisoners from the ukrainian side in rather an ugly reminder of the way that the german prisoners were paraded through moscow towards the end of the second world war. so we have yet to see whether that actually transpires, but that is what donetsk is planning, and of course these huge military parades take place in kiev as the government marks independence day from the soviet
1:18 am
union. as president poroshenko describes, a battle in the east for ukraine's independence. >> yes. petro poroshenko is said to talk with vladimir putin to try to figure out a way to move forward and end the fighting. what's expected from those talks? >> reporter: well, hopefully some kind of progress, but given the humanitarian aid convoy that russia recently sent into the region unilaterally without any kind of agreement from kiev, russia seems to be positioning itself really as not really giving a damn about ukrainian borders as if it can act with impunity. hoping for progress is a different matter from whether we'll see progress. the german chancellor was in
1:19 am
kiev. many analysts think she was trying to push for an all out victory. that leaves president putin certainly in the eyes of his own public in a sort of very embarrassing situation, as having lost this region that he has always stood to them at least as the sort of benefactor for. her argument, according to analysts, was to try and find some kind of solution where mr. putin could leave without losing face. what exactly that is remains to be seen because it is quite clear that president poroshenko does not want to lose. whether a decentralized system is enough for the russian president is another story. we'll have to see what happens on tuesday but i wouldn't hold out great hopes. when you ask people how they see this fighting coming to an end, most of them shrugged and they say, we can't see any kind of resolution until putin pulls his
1:20 am
troops out from this region, troops that russia denies it has here, and then we can deal with the thugs, they say, who are on the streets ourselves. natalie. >> we appreciate your reporting. diana magnay in sloviensk. you're watching cnn. heavy rains battle puerto rico leaving devastation and flooding behind. ivan cabrera joins us with the latest. and in syria, a car bomb strikes a military post used by the assad regime. we'll be right back. of the and now angie's list is revolutionizing local service again. you can easily buy and schedule services from top-rated providers. conveniently stay up to date on progress. and effortlessly turn your photos into finished projects with our snapfix app. visit today.

welcome back. in syria a car bomb has struck a military post used by the assad regime. the suicide attack targeted a school being used by government forces near the christian town of murada. clashes in the area are ongoing between the regime and the front which has declared the area a military zone. the nigerian government is looking for 35 police officers apparently captured during an insurgent attack on a police training school. it happened in borno state, an area beset by violence. no claim for responsibility but much of the bloodshed in this area blamed on the islamist militant group boko haram.
1:24 am
heavy rains drenching the dominican republic and that led to flooding for puerto rico. a tropical storm over the turks and caicos on saturday. towns were put under flash flood watch as rains battled that island. our meteorologist ivan cabrera says this tropical depression could get worse and become a hurricane. what do you think? >> in the next few days i think it has a pretty good chance of becoming a hurricane. in fact, some of the models really blowing this upturning it into a cat 4 east of the united states. we'll get to that in a second. it's a tropical depression but it's causing floods. flash flood warnings remain in effect with this training moisture. the flows will be settling over the next few days across puerto rico. you can expect additional rainfall as we continue with this depression lurking just to your north. now it is impacting with the bahamas well. latest advisory, we're just a
1:25 am
few hours away from the national weather advisory. 55 kph. that's one reason the computer model forecasts are having trouble. we like a well defined center of circulation and we get better forecasts in the future. we'll get here. there's the low. there are tropical storm warnings from the bahamas. turks and caicos out of that. they're still looking at some squally weather. there it is. there's the track. eventually this is a five-day cone of uncertainty. that does include parts of the united states. most of the models still insisting this will go to the north, meaning east of the united states so that is the forecast right now. we like that, but look at the slow movement over the next few days. this is dangerous for the bahamas, obviously, because it's tropical rainfall and it's pouring over the same area day in and day out. that is a lot of water, 13
1:26 am
inches, over a foot, and that is a potential here. we're looking at eventually 4 to 8 inches and a foot. people posted on the eventual track of this. this one is named, marie. hurricane marie. very powerful storm. thankfully off the shore but impacting with western parts of mexico here bringing some rainfall to places like pu puerto vallarta. look at that eye, natalie. it will pop. we're going to hope that cristobol never gets to that intensity. >> hope so. >> we'll talk some volcano in the next half hour. >> yes, we're going to. about to tease that story. you're watching cnn. coming up, israel and hamas continue to trade fire. we'll have the latest

welcome back to cnn. i'm natalie allen. our top stories right now. in libya, militias from the city of misrata. seize control of tripoli. they call it libya dawn. fighters force out rival militia men. they control the airport since the libyan revolution there. attacks across iraq in
1:31 am
kirkuk. four bombs exploded. 29 people killed. in irbil a car bomb wounded several people and in baghdad a suicide bomber attacked a government building killing four. five rockets from syria hit locations in the golan heights overnight. no reports of casualties. israel captured this mountainous area back in 1967. meantime, israel and gaza continue to trade fire. look at this. israeli airstrike brought down a 14 story building in the heart of gaz stay city. israel said it housed a command center for militants. gaza residents say it housed families. 17 people near the building were wounded. 20 minutes earlier they had been warned by the ice railly military an attack there was
1:32 am
coming. perhaps that warning saved lives. ian lee is in gaza for us. he joins us with the latest. it seems the back and forth will not let up, ian. >> reporter: well, that's exactly right, natalie. and when you see that building collapse, that's the tallest building that has been brought down by israel during this conflict. and you may wonder why so many people were injured in that, and that's usually when you see these roof nuts, these warnings, that at times have been deadly themselves that tell people a larger strike is coming in, you do get a lot of onlookers. people gather around from a distance to see the strikes, but this one brought down that building. a lot of these people were injured from falling debris. but despite that, these people are relatively lucky. ten people were killed yesterday in israeli strikes bringing that number well over 2100 people who
1:33 am
have been killed since this conflict has begun, including many of those children and the united nations say roughly 70 to 75 beers perce 75% of these people have been civilians. like you said, this isn't letting up any time soon. we've seen airstrikes and we've seen rockets go out. just today there's talks -- there's hopes that they can get the two sides together in cairo, but as of now that seems unlikely, natalie. >> ivan, many of the civilians that have been injured and terrorized have been children, and you went to find out how they're coping. >> reporter: that's right. this has been a seven week conflict now, and a lot of the people, you know, if they're not injured, they're near these explosions, they're near the fighting and that just has a devastating effect on the mental
1:34 am
state of children. we went and talked and found some of these children. at that i can a look at this. the immense city of the destruction in gaza. entire neighborhoods flattened. over 2,000 people killed. but it's the damage with the greatest reach that is also the hardest to see. the psychological toll of the war affecting the strip's most vulnerable, children. here at the child and family counseling and training center they aren't just reciting the colors, they're rewiring their brains with hope of achieving some sort of normality. something as simple as popping a balloon unsettles the nerves. loud noises associated with death and destruction are being reprogrammed to sound, well, like something different.
1:35 am
the professor of psychiatry says this war has created an unparallel number of children needing therapy. >> we expected more acute stress action, mostly anxiety. we are seeing cases now with their sleep disturbance, hyper activity, overactivity. we're seeing children with aggressive behavior. >> reporter: the u.n. estimates up to 400,000 children in gaza are in need of psychological care. experts say that it's crucial for children dealing with trauma to get back to some sort of normal routine. they say going back to school is extremely important, but as you can see at this school in central gaza city, the classrooms are full, but not with students. that's because for now they're make shift shelters. schools have been canceled.
1:36 am
here we find grandmother aziza said. she tells me her years of experience taught her what children need most is hope, kindness and a loving embrace to melt their problems away. simple acts desperately needed in a hopeless place. and, natalie, when we look at that video of that 14-story building collapse, there's dozens of families that were living inside that building. and when they lose their homes like that, they usually go to the schools that we just saw if they don't have a family member to stay with, so you can see, for a lot of these people they won't just have homes to go back to once this conflict is over. so it's going to be hard to get these schools up and running when you have so many people taking shelter in them, natalie. >> yet another complexity in trying to get their lives back
1:37 am
in order. thanks. ian lee there for us in gaza. one of the big surprises of the year has been the swift isis push across northern iraq. the jihadist group had been thought of as maybe 10 to 15,000 members strong, but now we're hearing the estimates are maybe as many as 45,000 isis fighters with millions of dollars in the group's arsenal. how could the world have been so caught off guard by this group? i put that question to andrew tabler of the washington institute for near east policy. >> i think wishful thinking. i think president obama called it the j.v. team or something like that. >> yes, he did, earlier this year. >> yeah. that's wishful thinking. and, you know, part of it plays into a mood into the united states, we wish these problems would go away. they don't go away. but the biggest issue is to us
1:38 am
on television and in the newspapers, what goes on in syria is seen as something isolated -- or iraq icsolated ad doesn't go beyond the borders. this is a sectarian war between the sunnis and the vanguard forces being isis and the iranian forces in iraq and syria which have blasted their way through the sunni populations for years and now are a big problem because isis is coming back and helping sunnis fight back. that's the real struggle behind the scenes. >> right. our reporter jomana karadsheh reported she has not seen the country so divided. do you give this new unified government any chance of emerging from this chaos? >> it would be hard. it's possible for it to manage it, but in the end all the sunnis in syria and iraq know
1:39 am
that the governments in both countries are controlled by iranian backed force sz and shia forces. in the case of iraq it's a more lasting government. in the case of bashar al assad, it's brutal. sunnis have a choice. surrender to the assad regime or go over and join isis. some people are joining isis. that leads to swelled numbers as we've seen the last few weeks. the prime minister of the ivory coast has closed the country's borders with guinea and liberia. a response to the ebola outbreak in west africa. the borders will remain closed until further notice in an attempt to prevent the virus from spreading. according to the latest figures from the world health organization, there are more than 1400 confirmed or suspected
1:40 am
deaths from ebola, more than 2600 cases of the virus since the outbreak began back in march. the virus has claimed 624 lives in liberia, 406 in guinea and sierra leone, 392. and in nigeria, 5 deaths. you're watching cnn. coming up, the dangers young african-americans can face when confronted with police officers. and we take a look at just how police across the united states are trained to use deadly force. ifyou may be muddlingble withrough allergies.nger... try zyrtec® for powerful allergy relief. and zyrtec® is different than claritin. because it starts working faster on the first day you take it. zyrtec®. muddle no more™.

more than two weeks after a policeman in ferguson, missouri, killed unarmed teen michael brown, the demonstrations have calmed. right now it's a little past 3:30 in ferguson. no reports of confrontations with police tonight, but there are still demonstrators out there voicing frustration over the shooting. there were a handful of arrests. on saturday a different demonstration. this one supporting officer darren wilson who fired the deadly shots. confrontations between police and young black men in the united states can be complicated and dangerous. in a moment cnn will show us an officer training lab designed to address those dangers. but first poppy harlow introduces us to activists who
1:44 am
teach young men how to behave when dealing with police. >> don't shoot and we won't get hurt. >> reporter: as questions swirl around the michael brown shooting, could a controversial lesson save lives when young people in america, especially minority youth, are stopped by police? the creator of this diagram says yes. educator david miller founded the dare to be king project as part of a curriculum he calls life and survival skills focused on minority youth. >> these rules have literally saved my life. >> reporter: this is miller's diagram, ten rules of survival if stopped by the police. first, be polite and respectful when stopped by the police. keep your mouth closed. it also says don't in any circumstance get into an argument with the police, and it says even if you believe that you are innocent, do not resist arrest. >> it's for any child, but when i designed the poster my main
1:45 am
targeted audience was black and latino kids because we know that disproportionately black and latino kids are stopped by the police. there are a lot of young people in this country who are just mad, angry and frustrated and often times their initial response to being stopped by the police can determine what the next course of action is. >> reporter: miller says he's been stopped in numerous cities by police. >> some of it just comes down to just being black and male in america. >> reporter: he was arrested as a teen for fighting. as a father he's taught his three children these rules. >> the vast majority of police officers are good men and women who are patrolling streets of america who want to get home to their families safely. our ultimate goal is to make sure that young people can live through a police stop. >> those are good rules of citizenship. >> reporter: but cnn law enforcement analyst tom fuentes takes issue with some of it. >> i think the issue that the police are somehow likely to bring death upon you, you know, not just that it's possible but
1:46 am
it's likely if you don't know how to survive the encounter i think is a terrible premise in the first place. >> reporter: 17-year-old ma'lik lynch says he was taught something similar to miller's diagram in high school. >> without it, i don't know where would i be. >> i just want him to get home safe by any means necessary, and if this literature can help him in any way, shape, or form, i'm all for it. >> i think this should be a class taught on how to be -- to respect the police. i think personally that the police should have a class on how to treat us as well. >> reporter: attorney general eric holder this spring cited a recent study showing 49% of black men in the u.s. are arrested at least once by the time they are 23. >> it's an ongoing conversation that's been happening, you know, for minorities, particularly african-americans because of the history of slavery for centuries and so, no, i'm not surprised to see that diagram. we haven't really addressed the heart of the issue that keeps having these conversations come up in the first place. >> reporter: until then,
1:47 am
parents, teachers, and teenagers will have to decide if this is a lesson worth learning. poppy harlow, cnn, new york. when to shoot. for law enforcement like ferguson police officer darren wilson who shot michael brown. >> got a gun. >> and then they confronted a knife wielding mentally ill man. >> drop the gun. >> reporter: that decision begins with training at the police academy. >> this is standard training in the police academy. >> throughout the united states this is standard training. >> reporter: forensic criminologist ron martinelli has been an expert in this. >> i don't know that he's armed, he's a big guy.
1:48 am
>> ferguson police say michael brown's body was found 35 feet from the police car. it's unclear what distance he was shot from, but these types of officer involved shootings typically happen in close proximity. at a san diego area shooting range, martinella shows us what's called the 21 foot rule. >> sir, put that knife down. drop that knife. >> the assail land rushes. >> you had time to aim at this distance. >> at this distance there's no aiming. >> reporter: everything takes time. two seconds to unholster and depress the gun. >> you have to move, rock it back and pull it out. >> reporter: the same amount of time it takes for him to run 21 feet. change the scenario. >> reporter: even at this distance, even where you see the knife, even where your gun is out,' still got you? >> oh, yeah. absolutely. we can really see that knife there and we did get -- you know, i've got a lot of time and
1:49 am
i'm on my front side and i can take shots. well, then that distance would be okay. right? >> reporter: but in most real street situations that's not -- >> i'm even farther back, right. >> calm down. calm down. >> reporter: change the scenario to a smaller female assailant and you gain more time, but not much. this doesn't factor in the officer's experience and adrenaline level. if there's cover or if people are in the line of fire. then add to the officer's duty belt -- >> the more things you add to the holster or to the duty belt, that delays the officer's response by 50% of reaction time. >> reporter: it's easy says martinelli to say officers have other choices. that doesn't mean that every officer shooting is justified. >> that assailant poses an imminent threat to that officer of serious bodily injury or death. >> reporting there for us. you're watching cnn.
1:50 am
next here it's empty now, but on monday this building will be filled with the glitz and glamor of one of the biggest events on the entertainment calendar. we'll have a sneak peak of the emmy awards. q.
1:51 am
1:52 am
air space over part of iceland is closed right now due to a volcano brewing under this ice you see here. iceland's government raised the aviation alert to red, which means an eruption is imminent or
1:53 am
in progress. you'll remember back in 2010 this eruption in iceland caused the largest closure of european air space since world war ii. more than 8 million travelers were affected with losses estimated at about 3 billion. so what do we face now with this new volcano? well meteorologist ivan cabrera following it for us. >> yes. >> sounding not too good. >> no, it's not. hopefully we won't have that again, otherwise, it is a beautiful place, iceland. of course we talk about all the volcanos across the region here. it's a volcanic island there. there we have the red triangle. that means imminent. we have gone from escalating unrest to imminent. what that means is, well, exactly what we're talking about here, a significant emission of ash is possible.
1:54 am
in fact, they're saying even likely up into the atmosphere especially if it blows its top here from the chamber. that's what you don't want because that explosion would take the ash into the atmosphere and then the heating of the air would continue rising and raising that ash up. so that is a bad worst case scenario, right? we don't want that to happen. we just don't know what is going to happen here. neither do volcanologists. they're monitoring that. we have had eruptions but they've been subglacier. while they have not pierced the ice. that is excellent news. we've had these releases of magma here, but so far the earthquakes continue and unfortunately we had 5.3 just a few hours ago. that is a significant shaking of the earth up there. so we're going to have to watch this closely. the reason we're worried, of course, is the upper level winds would take the ash as did happen
